Xeomin® (pronounced ‘ZEE-oh-min’) is a second-generation botulinum toxin and has been used successfully in other countries since 2005. We have been using this purified version for almost 5 years and have found it to be a great alternate to Botox®. Xeomin® is designed to treat lines and wrinkles and when injected skilfully can produce very natural results still allowing expressive facial movement.
Facial wrinkle treatments performed at Jeunesse MedSpa® using Xeomin® involve temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract and effectively smoothing and reducing the appearance of frown lines. This involves the injections (using a tiny micro needle) of a minuscule amount of incobotulinumtoxinA, which is an FDA approved botulinum toxin type A. Xeomin® wrinkle treatment works by temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract. After these injections, all untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to remain unaffected.
Following a treatment, normal activities can resume immediately as long as you remain in an upright position and avoid any facial massages.
The results of the Xeomin® injections are not instant. Improvement is gradual and usually begins within 2 to 3 days, with the final result achieved in about a week. In most cases, the treated wrinkles will relax and soften, producing a younger, well-rested appearance.Although the improvement varies with each person, the result may last 3 to 4 months or longer.
Who better to trust for the most natural looking results from Xeomin® than one of the most experienced provider and trainer of Xeomin® in the NZ, the doctors at Jeunesse MedSpa®… experience you can trust.
